There will likely be 3 formal and formal is wearing dark suit, there will be many wearing dinner suits or a tux. On the informal nights a jacket/trousers/shirt/tie whilst Cunard does not have casual nights but only elegant casual ones, on these night shirt and tie but not normally a jacket but there is always a variation.

Long evening dresses are the norm on formal nights but many people also wore evening trousers and glam tops. The shop on board also sells evening and day clothes. Surprisingly, I saw the same top I had bought this Summer in UK but because the prices are all in dollars on the ship, it was about 1/3rd cheaper. I also found that for the informal nights, good restaurant/theatre outfits were ideal. Daytime attire would be the same as in a smart hotel. Would suggest you take a pashmina as sometimes the Med area can be quite chilly at night. You will have much warmer weather than we did in the Fjords, so you will certainly need 'poolside' swimming gear and cover-ups. N.B. We had heard that there was little drawer space in the cabins but we found that the shelves in the wardrobes were OK and I took large zipper bags for underclothes, socks etc. The space under the bed took our 3 large suitcases, plus the life jackets, so we were not inconvenienced at all. One tip: If you like decent coffee, the bar near the Brittannia restaurant on Deck 2( I think it's called Caronia ?) has a decent Italian coffee machime. You can buy a capuccino 'to take away' and then go up to the Lido for the self-service breakfast (although we never tried to take it into the Brittania restaurant)! It wsa also our first cruise and we hope you enjoy the experience as much as we did.

Ports of Call or Sea Days?

By Lee Johnson

After booking a passenger yesterday on a 24 night Caribbean cruise from Southampton return it got me thinking about the different itineraries, some that are port intensive and some that have lots of Sea days, as this one did.Having taken my first Cruise back in 2002 on board the QE2 transatlantic to New York I fell in love with the cruise experience during those sea days. There was always something going on, be that Ballroom dancing or learning the tango (I didn’t do any of this for th...

Adonia back with P&O

By Gemma Coles

Gemma Coles's blog

 It doesn’t seem that long ago when we said goodbye to the P&O Adonia. P&O Adonia left the fleet in 2015 with much sadness to lots of passengers. The ship went to Fathom Cruises which is a line dedicated to volunteer tourism. Guests were taken to locations such as the Dominican Republic to help teach English or build water filtration systems to help with poorer countries. Carnival Group have now announced that after an upgrade to the ship, with the addition of a new rest...
